Here are some cute ideas for announcing pregnancy, gender and name picks! Have fun.
I told my mom really early last time, as early as we knew. And her response? "Are you still in your slippers and robe?" In other words, she imagined me calling her as soon as the moment we finished with the "conjugal act." Her meaning was basically "you've told me way too soon," but what I thought was hilarious was 1. that she seemed to have no understanding of the 2WW and 2. that she associated sex with a pink marabou slippers and silk robe set, as seen in 1940s movies. Come to think of it, though, that is quite the glamorous thought. Mom! Who knew?
In any case, DH, DS and I will be traveling to the States for my brother's wedding when I'm 16 weeks. I may just wait til we come walking down the gate, and remind her of her comment when she looks at me with an indignant expression.
Aloya, that's pretty funny. With my first pregnancy, I was still in college, unmarried, and it was totally unplanned. I told my mom but I wouldn't let her tell any of the extended family. The way I announced it was by showing up 6 months pregnant to A. a family reunion (dad's side) and B. Thanksgiving (mom's side). My poor parents. Oh, and my boyfriend was too chicken and/or selfish to come with me to either event. Good thing he's matured or no way I'd have kept him around this long.
